This weekend we woke up to a surprise… Annabelle had her calf!
Delmonico is a half-Highland, half-Jersey bull calf. He was born early Saturday morning and is a happy, healthy little guy! Mama is doing great and is ever vigilant. Last night when it was raining, she tucked her little man in behind the big hay bale in the shelter to stay warm and dry.
We weren’t sure when our little calf would come, since Annabelle’s previous owner said the bull had gotten in with her by accident last summer. We knew it was April or August… apparently it was April!
Herd shares will open up in a month or so. We want to let Delmonico get the best start he can possibly get, so we’ll let him have all the milk for a while.
In the mean time, welcome little guy! If you’d like to come meet Delmonico, Annabelle, and all the others, get ahold of us and we’ll set you up a tour!
